Decision Making for Managers

Overview

One of the underlying causes of individual and organizational under-performance is the poor quality of decisions that employees and managers take and more so, the lack of skills in managing the consequences of their decisions. Most professionals will do anything to avoid taking a decision and being held accountable for decisions, putting a lot of pressure on very few senior managers to make even the most basic operational decisions on their behalf. The reasons are obvious - a culture of thinking and decision making is not pervasive in the organization and the professionals do not have the skills for effective decision making and management.
